Black Media - US - July 2009
With the economic impact of African Americans continuing to grow at a vigorous clip, skilled marketers need to understand how Black media acts as a gateway to tapping into this spending power. Unlike mainstream TV channels or internet sites, media outlets that specialize in Black-oriented content reflect a set of cultural and social experiences that set Black media apart from those of other races. Black people also trust Black media more than they do other media outlets, making it the starting point for marketers to reach this audience, one that will only grow in affluence and influence. Ignoring the role of Black media means that a marketer’s products and messages will be lost on a critical portion of the American economy, the Black consumer.
